  1. 3 Lost on Mount Hood

    To all of those search and rescuers out their looking for Brian Hall, Kelly James and Jerry Cooke, I say THANK YOU from the bottom of my Heart. Contrary to some reports that I have been hearing, these guys are VERY experienced climbers. Brian Hall is a very good friend of mine and I attempted to climb Mt Rainier with Kelly and Brian in 2005, but had to turn back do to whether. Brian and Kelly have climbed Denali, Aconcagua, Rainier...numerous times and many peaks in South America. In talking with Brian over this past year, he had talked about trying to climb Everest within the next few years. They went to Mt. Hood to prepare themselves for the conditions they may experienced on Everest. Brian trains religiously for these climbs on an incline treadmill and stair climber with a pack filled with 80 lbs of weights for 4-6 hour stretches. Brian told me last year that he had a 1/2 bivy 1/2 Sleeping bag that he had purchased. I honestly believe they are still alive and will be glad to see you find them...God Willing...TODAY! I am sending you all POSITIVE ENERGY and PRAYERS from Dallas! Stay Safe and bring the boys home! Ari Chaney Dallas, TX
